Regenerative Harvest Portfolio

Transforming food systems

Why we invest in food systems

A strategy at the intersection of community, climate, and ecosystem

We believe the industrial food system has done more harm than good. We want to invest in regenerative food system techniques that benefit people and the planet.

The Regenerative Harvest Portfolio supports the transformation of our food system into one that is regenerative, healthy, and resilient.

There are critical bottlenecks in the current system that limit the ability of good producers, processors, and packagers to achieve scale, especially for early, growth-stage enterprises.

What is regenerative agriculture?

Regenerative farming techniques, informed by traditional ecological knowledge, focus on rebuilding soil health through ecosystem-centered techniques, like composting and adding animals into their crop rotation practices.

These practices focus on the long-term health of the soil, water, pollinators, workers, and community rather than short-term gains from using synthetic fertilizers or pesticides.

The fund is currently open to accredited or certain charitable investors.

Meet portfolio company Cairnspring Mills

Co-founded in 2015 by CEO Kevin Morse (pictured) and COO Tim Hunton among a group of Skagit Valley farmers, economic development leaders, and bakers, Cairnspring Mills is a regenerative flour mill located in northwest Washington that produces fresh stone-milled flours made from fully traceable, identity-preserved grains purchased from a network of small regional farmers they know and trust.

By investing in regenerative agricultural processors like Cairnspring Mills, we have an opportunity to contribute to improving the quality of agriculture infrastructure in the long run.
